What If Caterham Operated Its Own An Airline?

We’ve seen plenty of crossover between the automotive and aerospace industries, from Saab’s being “born from jets” to Lamborghini and Boeing partnering to develop carbon composites together. But as much as they may use them, automakers don’t typically run their own airlines. So what would it be like if they did?

That’s what Caterham is amusingly hypothesizing in this latest video. Now if you’re thinking that a Caterham airplane would probably be lighter and easier to repair than most, you’re on the same page as we are. And the company was linked to Air Asia when its owner Tony Fernandes bought the British automaker as well. But we may be overthinking things here.

The video more lightheartedly envisions a theoretical Caterham Airways, where smoking (tires) is encouraged and there is no overhead storage. It looks like a decidedly more enjoyable way to travel, if less comfortable and convenient. But given the choice between flying skywards or riding sideways in a Seven, we know which we’d choose.
